About me

My name is Gill Becque and I have been practising in the Glossop area. I really love my work as a counsellor, and feel it is a great privelege to be invited into people's lives when life isn't working for them. I offer a safe space, where thoughts, feelings and behaviour can be explored. I offer acceptance and non-judgment with the aim of empowering people to make changes in their life that will be helpful and healthy for them.

I only offer telephone counselling or meetings via online eg zoom in these challenging times.

My approach is person-centred which means that I work with what each person brings, and I tend to work intuitively with each person and enjoy finding ways of exploring with them the issues that arise. I don’t have my own agenda. I also work with a number of other therapeutic styles when it feels appropriate for the client, as I have carried on developing my training over the last 16 years.

About me

I am creative and have a love of music, sound and poetry, which I often use as a therapist in 1-1 sessions and workshops. I am also a qualified sound therapist and previously offered relaxing 1-1 sessions from my private practice in Padfield. These are especially helpful with stress and anxiety. I also am a tutor and have trained many students to become sound therapists, which has been really enjoyable.

I am married and have three grown-up children and a grandson. I think family is very important. My career was as a secondary school music teacher, which I loved, being able to enthuse young people about the benefits of making music and finding ways to use music for relaxation and interaction with others.
